Judge Nathan Green was not only one of 
Tennessee's most notable men — he was 
one of the most remarkable men of his 
time. It is not an unhearil-of thing for 
a man to live to be ninety-two years of 
age, but one who continues active work 
when he has passed four-score and ten 
has been rare since the days of the He- 
brew patriarchs. Judge Green taught his 
law class on tlie day of his death. His 
life covered a period from 1S27 to 1919. 
Many of the world's important events 
were embraced in the period in which he 
lived. His is a place of distinction in the 
annals of Tennessee. Judge Green was 
endeared not only to his immediate 
friends, but to many throughout the 
country who have felt the obligation of 
his valuable and painstaking tutelage in 
their early lives. 


Dr. Andrew B. Martin -^-as born and 
reared in Smith County, Tenn. He moved 
to Lebanon, Tenn., when a young man. 
He was educated in the schools of Leb- 
anon, graduating from Cumberland Uni- 
versity with the LL.B. degree in 185S. 
He served with distinction in the Civil 
"War. After the war ended he practiced 
law in Lebanon. Tenn., for a number oi 
years. He served as a professor of law 
in Cumberland University from 1S7S to 
1920. For almost half a century Dr. 
Martin gave his talents and energy to 
the development of the Law Department 
of Cumberland. Through the untiring 
efforts of Dr. Martin and Judge Green 
the Law School of Cumberland University 
was developed to a high degree of ef- 
ficiency. One has but to scan the list of 
the alumni to find many of the country's 
leading men that are the product of the 
Law Department of Cumberland Uni- 


Vice-President Cumberland University 

President (Ibid) Ad Interim 

Dr. Buchanan was born in Lebanon, Tenn., December 14, 1861. 
Graduateci from Cumberland University, A.B. degree, 1879, received 
degree of Doctor of Divinity from same institution. Pastor of Pres- 
byterian churches in Fori Worth and Houston, Texas. He was for 
one year associated with Col. L. L. Rice in the management of Castle 
Heights Military Academy, Lebanon, Tenn. Dr. Buchanan comes 
to his new position ripe in experience and scholarship and is emi- 
nently qualified to represent Cumberland University throughout the 
South and the country at large. Cumberland University is to be con- 
gratulated on securing the services of Dr. Buchanan. Under his wise 
direction Cumberland will make marked progress and will accomplish 
a great work in the field of Christian education. The trustees, alumni 
and students have abiding faith and confidence in Dr. Buchanan, and 
realize that the famous old institution that has produced so many 
illustrious men in the past will continue to fill its place in the training 
of the young manhood and womanhood of the country.

Class History 

Flon>er : Violet 

N the fall of '17 our class liad Its beginning. There were sixteen of us 

freshmen, and we well deserved the name which we bore, for we were 
quite "fresh" and "green." It is interesting to notice that of this sixteen 
only four are in the Senior Class. We were very glad to receive a new 
member into our Senior Class, which increases our number to five. Three members of our 
Freshman Class are seniors at other universities, the other nine have fallen by the way- 
side. All of which goes to prove that to reach the point of being a senior is clearly a 
test of the survival of the fittest; those who have no "sand" and "grit" can never reach 
this blissful state; they fall out long ere this point is attained. 

As sophomores we felt quite exalted and overly wise. The "greenness" and "fresh- 
ness" of the previous year had begun to wear off somewhat, and we were seeing new 
visions and dreaming new dreams. The suddenness of this change caused us to feel a 
little "puffed up," and we often felt it our duty even to instruct the members of the 

Our junior year was a period of "lopping off." The folly of the previous year 
began to dawn upon us, and we began to rid ourselves of the bad habits and wrong im- 
pressions which we formed during the sophomore year. We can still hear Professor 
Drane saying to the members of his classes: "It is just as important that you learn that 
you don't know some things as it is to learn that you do know other things." It was in 
the junior year that the thought first dawned upon us that there were some things that we 
didn't know, so in view of this wonderful discovery, we began to apply ourselves to our 
studies, and this resulted in wonderful progress. 

We are now seniors, and what a marvelous transformation four years of college life 
has brought about. We feel the great respcnsibilities that rest upon our shoulders as we 
go out into the world, and whatever success we may attain, to our Alma Mater, with its 
splendid and well-learned faculty, shall be ascribed much of the honor and glory.

Historical Sketck of Class of 1920 

N the summer of 1920 plans were completed by ninety-one men from dif- 
ferent parts of Uncle Sam's dominions for obtaining the degree of LL.B. 
For many weeks and months these men studied the catalogs of different 
schools and the inducements of each. Finally, after comparing honor rolls, 
costs, course of study, and all other things that make a school, they decided 
that the Lebanon Law School was the proper place to attend. 

September 8 was registration day. Each fellow went about the necessary prepara- 
tions with so much enthusiasm that by night on that day all necessary preparations were 
made for work. 

On September 9 the opening services were conducted at Caruthers Hall. Judges 
Beard and Chambers both made able addresses, followed by a few short talks by some 
of the prominent citizens of the to\\Ti. Then assignments were made for the next day. 

The first recitation was held on the morning of the 1 0th. It was not a perfect one, 
of course, because each fellow was studying his new surroundmgs more than he was his 

On September 20 a reception was given by the town in the Y. M. C. A. hall at the 
dormitory. For the first time the ice of social entrance was really broken, and the embryo 
lawyers from that time made themselves at home in Lebanon. 

Things now ran smoothly until a few weeks before the national election on November 
2. Then the Republicans and Democrats of the school began to treat each other as 
jealous lovers. Warm discussions became as frequent as meals. Messrs. Tolbert, Riggs 
and Biggs were finally recognized as the leaders of the Republicans. Messrs. Walton, 
McClendon, Kensinger and Jones were the recognized leaders of the Democrats. Each 
party formed their clubs. The Democratic Club elected Mr. C. E. Kensinger president. 
Mr. J. A. Tolbert was elected president of the Republican Club. No one fought, but 
on the morning of November 3 the Democrats were silent and gloomy, the Republicans 
silently joyful. The fight was over, the climax passed. 

But this political fight brought out the fact that W. O. Walton was to succeed Henry 
W. Grady as the South's idol, that Mr. McClendon was to be a factor in national democ- 
racy, that Mr. Jones would some day be the Patrick Henry of the West. It proved also 
that Mr. Tolbert was the future Abe Lincoln of the U. S., and that Messrs. Riggs and 
Biggs would some day give the Democrats trouble in Tennessee. The fight proved clearly 
that there were reserved seats in Congress for both factions of the class and that they 
would som: day have another chance of friendly combat in the capitol of the nation. 

The class did not complete their organization as juniors until November 15. At this 
time there were no hard fights for class honors, but none of the officers elected could boast 
of any large majority. Mr. Burke was elected president by a majority of two votes over 
Mr. Ivy. Mr. Dalbey was elected vice-president, Mrs. McCouan was elected secretary. 
Miss Packer, treasurer. With these officers the Junior Class continued its career. 

The students now stormed the works of Blackstone, Kent, Greenleaf, Story and 
others, bravely, until the spirit of Christmas began to fill the air. Then visions of home, 
mother, sweethearts and friends sitting around tables loaded for the Christmas feasts began 
to come to each member of the class. On December 4 the homeward bound were led 
by Mr. Bond, and by December 22 there were only twelve or fifteen left to hear Judges

Beard and Chambers expound the law. On December 23 school closed until Januai-y 3. 

By January 3 all but five were back for work. Each person reported a good time 
at home. By January I school was again in full sway. 

On January 20 the Senior Class graduated. All the juraors attended the commence- 
ment exercises. Judge Gardenhire's address was the feature of the evening. The class 
made a splendid appearence. Within three days after graduation all of the seniors had 
gone to their respective homes to assume their responsibilities as leaders in society and 
champions of the law. They had disappeared to mingle in the sea of humanity and to 
champion the nation's welfare. The juniors missed them keenly. No more would they 
hear the addresses of Judge Buback before the Bolshevik Club. No more, until they 
meet again in more renowned halls, would they enjoy the associations of these departed 

On January 20 the juniors became seniors. The class election was held January 26. 
Here was more fighting. For weeks the two sides had been campaigning for their respec- 
tive candidates. Each had sworn that they would elect the officirs from their crowd. 
Each side made out their slate. Mr. W. O. Walton was recognized leader of one side. 
Mr. Howard was the leader of the other. When the time for nominations came that 
morning, Mr. Finch in a well-worded speech nominated Mr. Walton. Mr. Lewis then 
nominated Mr. Howard in a speech of no small eloquence. Nominations for vice- 
president, secretary, treasurer, orator, prophet, poet and historian then followed. When 
voting began each student's nerves were tense from excitement. When the final count was 
made at 10:30 a. m. it was shown that Mr. Howard had won by a majority of two 
votes over Mr. Walton. Mr. Walton's supporters wept, Mr. Howard's supporters tore 
off the ceiling, plaster and shingles with their hilarious demonstrations. When all the 
votes were counted Mr. Snodgrass was declared vice-president, Mr. Speny, secretary; 
Mr. McClendon, prophet; Mr. Pierce, poet; Mr. Hill, historian; Mr. Johnson, treasurer; 
Mr. Tolbert, orator. With this corps of officers the Senior Class began their career. 
Work was now the chief feature of class activities. 

The graduating exercises were held at Caruthers Hall on the night of June 1 . It 
was an historic occasion in the history of Lebanon, and a landmark in the life of each 
student. There were no factions now. The fighting spirit had gone. Each student 
shook hands wnth his classmates and bade goodbye in assumed cheerfulness. 

When the trains pulled out of Lebanon on June 2 most of the students were at the 
depot and also their many friends in Lebcuion. Such exclamations as "So long, boys"; 
"Goodbye, girls"; "See you in Washington"; "Meet you in the U. S. senate," etc., 
were heard from each coach. 

But those days are gone now. The expectations of the students, however, are being 
realized. You can now see the names of the students in the great daily papers of the 
nation. Many of their dreams have come true. And as they look over the pages of this 
annual a flood of tender memories comes to the mind of each student, and many silent 
thoughts arise as they turn from cover to cover. 

Chester O. Hill, Historian.

Class Propnecy 

"When I dipt into ihe fulure far as human eye could see, 
Saw the vision of the world and all the wonder that would be. " — Tcnn\)son. 

S I undertake to picture the future of the Senior Class of 1921 I think I realize full 
well what a stupendous task it is. 1 have envoked the same far-seeing spirit that guided 
the seers of old, and at last in some indescribable and most mysterious manner, I have 
caught a vision of the future of the Class of 1921, which is related to the reader only 
for what he may deem it worth. 
It seems that I was living in the year 1940. and pursuant to the advice of my physician, was on a 
trip for my health. The journey started at Jackson, Miss. The first stop of importance was at Little 
Rock, Ark., where I was the guest of W. J. Irvin, my old roommate at C. U. He had been elected 
governor of his state and was wearing the honor very gracefully indeed. Of course we talked of the old 
days at Lebanon when we labored together on "Fourth Kent" and Story's Equity Jurisprudence. I asked 
him to tell me about the other "Arkansas Travelers," and he stated that C. O. Hill was speaker of the 
state senate, m which position he had been instrumental in putting some very imporant laws on the 
statute books. E. L. Hollaway was a very prominent lawyer at El Dorado, where he had amassed a 
great fortune in oil suits. 

My next sojourn was to Tulsa, Okla. On the train I met up with Jimmy Standford, who was on 
his way to Tulsa to look after some oil interests for a client. I learned from the conversation that he 
had made a very phenomenal success in the practice of law in Texas and Oklahoma. As we rode 
together he told me of the success of all of the men from the Lone Star State. Some had entered politics, 
and some were making a living by "the aforesaid and the same" method. J. V. Allred had served one 
term in congress and was a candidate for re-election. H. B. Harlgrave, A. C. Buckner, C. W. Voorheis 
and R. E. Baird were members of the state legislature. W. A. Koons and R. E. Phillips were district 
attorneys. E. W. Turner, O. H. Sluder, C. H. Sperry, S. P. Presswood. Van Anderson, E. S. Bond, 
Xaxier Christ, M. C. Douglas, Floyd Enlow, S. S. Gaines, J. E. Kuteman and A. A. Ledbetter were 
all enjoying a very lucrative practice at the bar of justice. 

While in Tulsa I visited the law firm of Crossland & Crossland, where a very interesting conversa- 
tion was enjoyed with Sam and Hess. They recited to me the records of the Oklahoma men as fluently 
as if they had memorized them for a set speech. "First," said they, "of course, you know that J. H. 
Raines has risen to national prominence in the Democratic Party, for he is now chairman of the national 
committee. There is no doubt but that his ability to organize and direct the affairs of a parly will 
cause him to dictate the policy of his party for years to come; even though he be opposed in the con- 
ventions by Tammany Hall. C. T. Bennett is circuit judge in his district, and according to reports is 
meting out justice to saint and sinner in a very becoming manner. Mrs. Pearl McKeowen is presiding 
in queenly beauty over the home of Dr. H. A. McKeowen. She has never practiced law, but is an 
honorary member of the Slate Bar Association. M. B. Johnson is in the state senate. C. J. Moody, 
N. B. Johnson, G. W. Satterfield and Gene Redd are prominent lawyers in different parts of the state.' 
and all of them are ornaments to their profession." 

From Tulsa 1 went to Memphis, Tenn., to attend the Tri-State Fair. On arriving there, I discovered 
in glancing over the Commercial Appeal, that a reunion of the Tennessee men of the Class of 1921 of 
C. U. was to be held in the banquet rooms of the Chisca Hotel at 8:30 that evening. Of course I took 
this opportunity of seeing some of the old boys. Every Tennessee man was present. The master of 
ceremonies was our efficient president, Peabody Howard. He was president of the L. & N Railroad

in which poc-iLon of trust and honor he had greatly improved the efficiency and service of that road. 
The meeting was a genuine joilyfication: an occasion of much oratory and humor. As the reminiscences 
of the days spent at Lebanon poured forth from the lips of the toasters one could not help feeling himself 
back in that Mecca of legal learning. My limited space prevents my giving a complete write-up of this 
occasion; hence I shall give only the position in life each man occup;ed as I learned it that evening. 
J. W. Van Dyke was making the "Old Volunteer" Slate a very pleasing governor. W. F. Barry and 
J, L. Snodgrass were judges on the Supreme Court bench. W. E. Donighy, D. L. Lansden, E. G. 
Tollett, W. D. Pogue and S. P. Raulston were or had been at some time circuit judges in their re- 
spective districts. B. Pope was state attorney-general. R. H. Porter and Henry Goodpasture were 
attorneys-general. O. V. Chesbro, D. Lewis, Bruce Ivy, C. L. Hensley, R. C. Burks, M. H. Biggs and 
J. L. Wolf were in the state legislature, and of course doing honor to their constituent;. W. M. Gibbs, 
J. A. Driver. J. L. Driscal, W. B. Allen. J. F. Morrison. William McClanahan, E. F. McClure, J. H. 
Noland. O. Osborn, G. J. Pierce, J. R. Rink, J. A. Smith, G. W. Smith, M. T. Thomas and C. S. 
Tollett had all made such flattering successes in the legal profession that their friends had been unable 
to get them to try their luck in the political field. 

Before the parting words were said the master of ceremonies called on the writer of this article ta 
give a report of- the men in the "Magnolia State." The following statement was made: "J. V. Gipson 
has been promoted by his constituents from the lower to the upper house of the slate legislature, where 
he has been the author of a good m?,ny constructive laws. G. H. Murphy is circuit judge in his district. 
J. R. Gi'-Eon and J. S. Finch are members of the house of representatives. H. K. Mahon, Jr., and 
P. C. Hale are lawyers of recognized ability in North Mississippi. At the close of these few rem.arks 
Peabody Howard suggested thai a vote of thanks be extended for them." 

I next viiited cur national capitol. In the senate chamber I heard a debate equal to the famou", 
Lincoln-Douglas or the celebrated Webster-Hayne debate; championed on the Democratic side by Will 

O. Walton of Alabama and Mi-s. Granella Packer ??? of Florida. On the Republican side 

by J. A. Tolbert of South Carolina and E. S. Dalby of Ohio. In the Supreme Court room I had the 
pleasure of hearing a very able opmion rendered by Chief Justice A. Barry. 

Before my visits were complete I had gotten information about every man in the class. The following 
men were practicing kw, and successfully, too: A. W. Nichols, K. Peterson, T. B. Rapkoch, Dr. 
M. E. Rives, H. E. Evans, H. M. Fields, O. A. Green and D. B. Kahn. W. C. Goad ha3 made a 
great success at law and had left the profession for a while to arouse public sentiment on several great 
reforms and because of his oratorical ability had become very prominent nationally. R. B. Giles was 
in his state senate. W. E. Griffith. A. H. Hinman and E. C. Kensinger were district attorneys in their 
states. C. J. Kane was a lawyer of great ability in Canada. Quinton Yumul had spent most of his 
life in working for political independence of the Philippines and at last his efforts had been crowned 
with success. Anna Boyer had given most of her time to persuading the different states to improve the 
hospitals for the unfortunate. Mrs. Fields was making her husband an excellent partner in law as 
well as a companion for life. T. D. Mason was chairman of the Democratic Committee of Maryland. 

From Washington I turned my face homeward, refreshed ?nd inspired from the pleasant experiences, 
and resolved thai I, tco, would accomplish something before my life was entirely spent.

Senior Law^ Class Oration 


i^ DEALS are fundamental essentials. Every individual race and nation since the dawn 
oi creation has had some ideal. The ideal of (he prehistoric man was entirely different 

'[ from that of a later period. Kingdoms, principalities, and empires have risen, flourished 
for a time and faded away. lVIan,y of the nations of antiquity are no more. Their 
passing from the arena of life was largely due to the ideal they cherished. Physical 
force was for untold centuries the supreme law of man. For ten long centuries a pall of darkness 
covered the continent of Europe. Finally a beam of light was seen through the impending gloom, and 
man was lifted from his lowly state. At last a clarion call was heard. "Awake thou that sleepesl." The 
hills took up the sound and echoed it on, and on it echoes slill. 

Could man made in the image of his Creator, and commanded by that Creator to go forth and subdue 
the earth, grope in darkness forever? Would he through all the years groan in chains of slavery? Justice 
from her throne answered no. Despaning of success in a land so fettered by ignorance and greed, a 
small band of determined men and women inspired with the ideal of patr.ot sm, libeity, and independence, 
set sail. Leaving their homes, their loved ones and all that was dear to them save the immortal ideal 
of independence, they turned their faces toward the land of America. In that land be|yond the Atlantic 
the founders of our government established the foundations oi' the grca'est and grandest republic the 
world has ever known. The iron hand of tyranny followed. Once established in their new home, they 
declared themselves free and independent. War followed, and the conflict will forever stand as the 
most glorious in the annals of time. The custodians of liberty swept back and forever wiped tyranny 
from the American soil, and today millions are blessed. 

Looking back through a brief span of decades we see a few strugghng settlements, sparsely peopled, 
clinging to the Atlantic seaboard, hemmed in by the Spaniard, the French, and savage Indian tribes, grow 
into thirteen colonies, throw off the dominion of a foreign king, and as united republics achieve their 
independence. We have seen these sla'.es lound a system of government w.lh constitutional guarantees 
and limitations guarded by an independent judiciary become in a brief period the marvel of all time. 
The fathers of our country established once and forever the cardinal principle of independence, freedom 
and equality of opportunity. From the landing of the Pilgrim Fathers on the far flung shores of New 
England, down to the present lime, liberty and independence have been supreme. The American ideal 
has ever been, and will always be, that of justice, independence and equality . It lakes service and 
sacrifice to maintain ideals. They can be maintained in no other manner. 

With a small beginning in the western world the ideal of freedom and independence has progressed 
until il IS now the world ideal. All honor to the founders of our nation. In their breast throbbed the 
true spirit of independence and equality under the law. The statesmen who framed the Constitution of 
the United States and provided thereby for the go ernment under which we now live, avoided thoce 
errors which had caused the downfall of ancient republics. Our system of three distinct departments — 
Legislative, Executive, and Judicial — paved the way for the best system of representative government 
that any nation has yet established. 

The republics of the middle ages manifested an innate tendency to become either a weak, unbridled 
mobocracy or a petty kingdom of tyrants. England furnished an example of the variations of power; 
the change from the rule of an aristocracy to a concentration of power in the king, ignoring the lords and 
the people. Our revolutionary statesmen studied the Swiss Republic, and drew as much wisdom as 
possible from those early attempts at just government. Our governm.ent is founded primarily on the free 
consent of the people.

ment, is the foundation of the American ideal. Despotism, bureaurocracy and autocracy were forever 
swept away when our system of Constitutional Government was established. The ideal of liberty, 
independence and equality that prompted ihe founding of the United States of America still survives. 
No star announced the birth of our republic, save the ever-gleamini; and never-fading light of libert|y. In 
the light of recent events the faith of our fathers has been jolted severely, but the spirit still survives. 
"Faith of our fathers, living faith, we will be true to thee till death." 

America has ever been the synonym for the loftiest, noblest and best in life. "Columbia, the gem 
of the ocean," has ridden through many storms. Through the guidance of an ail wise Providence she 
will weather the storm through which she is passing, and anchor safely in the haven of rest. Before we 
launch out in a visionary crusade presumably intended to benefit unapprccialive millions, let us keep the 
home fires of liberty, independence and freedom burning. 

"Breathes theie a man with soul so dead 
Who never to himself hath said. 
This is my own. my native land;* 
If such there breathe go mark him well, 
For him no minstrel raptures swell, 
High though his title, proud his name, 
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim, 
, Living he shall forfeit fair renown. 
And doubly dying shall go down 
To the vile earth from which he sprung, 
'Unwept, unhonored. and unsung. 

In this day of internal strife and dissension let us remember the stirring words of the immortal 
Lincoln, that "Government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish fiom ihe 
earth." This fundamental factor of the American creed should be adhered Id more than any olher in 
this the wake of the Twentieth Century, when radicalism is running rampant throughout th^ length and 
breadth of our country. When the bolshevist plots the destruction of our government; whrn so:;ialis(ic 
tendencies are rife in the land, let us turn to the source of all our strength and pledge our faith, our 
fealty, and our all to the task of preserving intact and transmitting to posterily the Amsriran ideal of 
liberty under the law. In a land of equal freedom the only sovereign power known is that of the 
supreme law of the land. Supremacy of the law. and rendering justice — these are ths two grca'_ com- 
mandants of the gospel of civil liberty. 

"Call it the selfishness of nationality if you will; I think it an inspiration to patriojz d^ o'lon to 
safeguard America first; to think of America first; to exalt Ameiica first; to I've for and revere Ameri a 
first. Let the internationalist dream and the bolshevist destroy. Let us dedicate ourselves to the task of 
preserving for all time the American ideal. In the spirit of the republic we proclaim Americanism, 
and acclaim America." 

Sail on, O union, strong and great. 
Sail on, O union strong and great, 
Humanity, with all its fears. 
With all the hopes of future years. 
Is hanging breathless on thy fate." 

Joseph A. Tolbert, Orator Senior Law Class, 1921.

Junior Law Class History 

HE Junior Law Class of Cumberland University came into being on Mon- 
day, Januai-j' 24, in the year of our Lord 1921. Its constituent elements 
were gathered from a wide range of territory; from Arizona, New Mexico 
and Wyoming on the west, to the Atlantic on the east; from the shores of 
Lake Erie on the north, to the southernmost part of Florida. 
From this wide diversity of localities it would at first appear that there would be a 
wide diversity of ideas, ideals and ambitions. In the history of this institution — the oldest, 
most highly respected of its kind in the land — no class has ever shown itself more clearly 
united in ideas, ideals and the purpose to so prepare, that as individuals each might more 
capably sei-ve his country and his fellowman. Contrary to the precedent established fhe 
past few years, no state predominates in numbers — and as to any state's predominating 
in quality of her offerings to the class, the writer deems it prudent to withhold judgment. 
Undismayed by the statements of the seniors as to the rigors of the course of study, 
the work was entered into with a vim that showed the definiteness of purpose of every 
man. The social side of the school was entered into just as heartily, and the writer feels 
that he is conservative in saying that this class has more members, proportionately, affiliated 
with the various fraternity chapters here than any class in the histoiy of Cumberland 

Class officers were elected at a mixed social and business meeting on February 28. 
This was the only exclusive Junior Class function of the year, the intensive work required 
by the course of study not permitting the loss of a single evening from the reading table. 
The class furnished the university the foundation for its gridiron hopes for the coming 
year. Richard W. Johnson is a man of broad experience in football, having played with 
the Carlisle Indians two seasons, later serving as coach on college teams in Oklahoma. 
We also furnished the varsity nine its utility man, Camplin, who has shown marked ability 
in the box, on short and at the bat. In the grandest game of all. Love, we peiTnit to 
assume the floor Oliver S. Huser of Oklahoma, whose ability to captivate the fair sex is 
only overshadowed by his ability to as dexterously v\athdraw from the lists of the fair one 
when another claims his attention. Mention is made of these as outstanding in their 
peculiar realm of endeavor, and no slight is intended to those others whose particular 
field is not so prominent in the school life. 

With the utmost respect and love for those learned men at whose fountain of knowl- 
edge we drink, and regard for our upperclassmen who have always wllingly lent a help- 
ing hand whenever we asked, the Junior Class of 1921 bespeaks for Cumberland Uni- 
versity the success she so richly deserves.

Of the twoscore apparently aspiring freshmen who entered Cumberland in September, 1918, hardly 
half a score remain to bear the noble standard of scholarship to victory in 1922. 

However, the purging virtues of scholastic training serve a praiseworthy purpose m elimmatmg the 
dross, that the purified precious metal may shine in undimmed splendor, dispensmg to the world its 
inestimable value in perpetuating all that is good. 

The personnel of the class is unique in that all dcpartmenis of the college, as well as all student 
activities are represented. Our co-eds are unsurpassed in the culinary art, as all our boj-s will attest in 
good faith. Our class is represented by some of the best athletes on all the teams. And to add to the 

Page forl\) 

The Phoenix, Nineteen Tiuenty-One 

artistic elements of the school we have some of the most gifted artists of the piano, violin, voice and 
reading to be found anywhere. We are also adequately represented in the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. 
C. A. and have a member of the Student Volunteer Band. 

As to scientific and literary research, we are not in default of a mathematician and a daring chemical 
experimenter, also a modern language shark, and numerous adept students of ihe social sciences. 

A large per cent of the literary society officials and leaders are chosen from our class. In a word, 
when a person of proficiency and ability is desired to take the lead in any phase of college activity 
A JUNIOR is chosen. 

We have met and successfully mastered every proposition that has presented itself. "Let us not be 
weary in well-doing, so that in due season we may receive our reward." 

Juniors, let us not falter in our endeavor to reach the much-desired goal of 1922. our Eldorado, but 
finish the homestretch with unabated zeal, and say with Poe: 

"Over the mountains 
Of the moon, 

Down the valley of the Shadow 
Ride, boldly ride." 

The shade replied: » 

"If you seek for Eldorado."

Sophomore Class History 

1 he Sophomore Class of 1921 consists of fifteen members. Twelve out of the fifteen 
entered the university last year as freshmen, and, havmg victoriously faced all problems 
confronting a freshman, make up the greater part of our Sophomore Class this year. The 
other three members, realizing what a fine institution Cumberland is, came here from 
other parts. 

This Sophomore Class is in many respects the best Cumberland has had in many 
years, and is the best class in school this year, not excepting those dignified seniors. In 
our midst we have representatives in every organization in the university. We have foot- 
ball, basketball and baseball players, Y. M. C. A. workers, musicians and other talented 
students. And then our class has the honor of claiming some of the most diligent students 
in school, the kind who believe that the more work they put in now, the more good they 
will get out of life later. To this fact any of our beloved teachei's will attest. It is on 
account of the work that the class as a whole has done that we prophesy a record-breaking 
Junior Class for next year. 

Indeed, after having been a member of this wonderful Sophomore Class of 1 92 1 , 
and with our hearts set on work we can see only the bright side of life, and remembering 
always "Attempt not, or accomplish thoroughly," we shall try to do honor to the name 
of Cumberland.

Class History and Prophecy 

The Freshman Class wsls organized completely in January, 1 92 1 . Our class roll 
consists of thirty-six names, four of whom are ministerial students, two pre-medical stu- 
dents, five student volunteers, and the remainder of them are pursuing the courses leading 
to the degrees, A.B., B.S. In January two of our class were taken from us as they 
received their matrimonial degrees. This class is one of the largest freshman classes that 
Cumberland has had for a good many years. We have varied talent in this class in 
which we find a scientific wrestler, boxers, basketball, football and baseball players, 
orators, violinists, soloists, ministers, artists, poets, mathematicians, a trained nurse, com- 
edians, jazz hounds and every other conceivable thing. We ha\'e successful representa- 
tion in every organization in the university. We were represented in basketball and foot- 
ball. Our most notable achievement was the winning of the interclass chaunpionship in 
basketball from the sophomores. We freshmen have placed our aims in life very high, 
and realizing there is a hard road to travel, we will still trod ever onward until we reach 
our goal. We realize that our many failures are only stepping stones to success. The 
Freshman Class of this year is the best enjoyed by the university for many years. With 
such fixed purposes in the minds and hearts of us, and the opportunities afforded us, we 
may safely prophesy a great future for our class. S. W. H.

Class of 1921 

Cumberland Preparatory Department 

HE Class of 1921 is great in spirit, in achievement, and in 

This class is composed of the following members: 
Anna Murphy, Ruth Lea, Anna Gray Cook, Marie 
1 hompson, Katherine Bryan, Alice Fisher Stratton, Anne Harrison, 
Frances Grigsby, Mildred Prewett, Jean Moore, Edna Watson, Richard 
Brown, Weldon Dmwiddie, Reese Macy, Harry Macy, George Evert- 
son, Elvis Evans, Walter Robins, Addison Barry, Joe Anderson Wier, 
Harry Steele, Leonard Fisher, Marcus McAllen, James McFarland. 

It is the boast of this class that it has not forfeited a senior privilege 
this year. We have had a happy year, but no short cuts nor easy roads: 
to receive a diploma from our school one must do four years' work of the 
standard required in the best schools of our nation. It requires hard 
work to claim Cumberland Preparatory as our Alma Mater, but we be- 
lieve our faculty v^all bear us out in saying there has not been a quitter in 
our class and the more difficult the work the firmer the resolution to do 
it and do it well. 

A new era of advance has been begun this year in our school and our 
principal has looked to our Senior Class for worthy student leadership. 
Her courage, determination and sympathy have helped us succeed and in 
turn our loyalty and success have helped to make for Cumberland Prep 
the greatest year in its history. 

Do not think, dear friends, that as a humble member of the above 
class I am a boaster. I am only stating facts about the great Class 
of 1921.

CumlDerlancl University Preparatory Sckool 

HE Preparatory Department of Cumberland University has grown in size, 
in spirit and in efficiency during the present year. 

With a faculty every member of which is a university graduate, a 
faculty which puts emphasis on scholarship and insists on high attainments, 
that it may reach the highest goal in character moulding, Cumberland Prep yields first 
place to no other school in the preparation of her pupils for college or for life. Whatever 
conduces to character formation in the class room, on the athletic field, in confidential 
talks between members of the faculty and the student body, is stressed. This school is 
strictly religious in principle and character. 

Well-equipped laboratories and library, splendid class rooms, comfortable dormi- 
tories, adequately furnished gymnasiums make it possible for ideal work to be carried out. 
1 his is an accredited school and offers great affiliation advantages: here you can be 
prepared for any college in the United States. A diploma from a school of this char- 
acter is a great asset for a boy or girl. Someone has aptly said that a diploma from a 
standard American school is like the hallmark on sterling silverware — it does not make it 
any better silver, but it does stamp it as of certain quality and fineness; or like the stamp 
of the mint on the $20 goldpiece — it does not make it any purer gold, but it does tell the 
world what it is. 

If a boy or girl is going to college, a diploma from Cumberland Prep will not only 
give him a pass into college, but will prepare him in such a way that he will be stamped 
with a certain quality and fineness after he has entered; or if he goes into business life he 
will find it distinctly an asset.

Public Speaking Department 

Under the instruction of Miss Sara Fakes, a graduate of Curry School of Boston, the 
Public Speaking Department of Cumberland University has shown great progress during 
the year. 

"A Midsummer Night's Dream," "The Romancers," and a number of short plays 
and sketches and occasional readings in chapel from the department have proven a source 
of pleasure to the student body. 

With about thirty members, one senior in the class, we consider ourselves a number 
one class.

Logan : End 

Weight 150. This was "Doug's" second year at the wing. When it 
comes to snarin' passes, there's none better than he — fast is his middle 
name. He was a power on defense, breaking up interference, and going 
down after punts. 


Weight 215. This young giant (6 feet 4 inches) had a habit of tearing 
through the Hne and breaking up plays before the backfield got started. 
"Big Dinny" is going to be with us for several seasons yet. 

Wallace ^^ ^ Cuard 

Weight 175. "Hot Rock" never said very much, but O boy, listen: 
He's a hard tackier and is there fighting all the time. He "showed his 
stuff" in the first game of the season with S. P. U. He'll be back next 

Cawthon ,.■■•„•. Cen/e," 

Weight 165. "Cotton" is another of those "tight as a clam" chaps. 
His steady, consistent passing saved many a fumble, and was a big factor 
m the efficient work of the backfield. We hope to have him back next 

Bond, Caplam ...... .^ Quard 

Weight 260. "Heavy" hails from Texas, where he learned to hit 'em 
hard and treat 'em rough. He was exceptionally fast for his weight and 
opened up a hole every time he moved, and whenever he stopped, the 
opposition stopped too. The efficient work of the line can be attributed to 
his coaching. 




Weir;ht 1 70. Too much cannot be said of the fast work of this hard- 
tackling, hard-working Kentucky boy. "Nick" got his collarbone broken 
in the last minute of play of the last game of the season, and that didn't 
seem to affect his "gameness." 

Stanford r . 

Weight 150. "Jimmie" and "Doug" made the fastest set of ends in 
this part of the state. "Jimmie" had a "sweet" way of being back where 
the ball was before the opposite backfield ever started to run, and never 
failed to down his man. 

Nolan n , l i 

\Y/ ■ u r /ic c ■ ' ' 1 ^uarterbacl( 

Weight 14^. Sweeping end runs, high dives over the line, passes straight 
and true, and some mighty boots — that sums up Joe's work. His hobby 
IS football, and the Michigan "eleven" is his goal for next year

Studer Halfback 

Weight 190. It's hard to tell where "Dutch" showed up best; he circled 
ends and tore up the line at will, and when he hit a man — they usually 
called for time. Fie could snatch a foi-ward pass out of the air anywhere. 

Johnson Fullback 

Weight 165. "Chief Sau-soo Wahoo" showed up among the best in all 
branches of the game, and lived up to the traditions of his people ; in cun- 
ning, speed and pluck. He is a brother of the new coacli. 

McClure Halfback 

Weight 1 70. "Fightin' Mac" was easily the best of the backfield. and 
was always alert and quick to act. His name tells more about his all- 
around qualities than we can tell in words. 

Allred Halfback 

Weight 158. Out with the "pep" and determination common among men 
of the "Lone Star" State, Jimmy was particularly adapted to his position. 
He had an educated toe, speed and nerve. Due to a fractured hand sus- 
tained early in the season, both he and the team were greatly handicapped 
throughout several games. 

Burks Tackle 

Weight 150. "R. C." was a bit diminutive in appearance for line work, 
but always delivered the goods, both on offense and defense. 

DoNAGHY Quarterback 

Weight 150. "Bill" was "stove up" the greater part of the season, but 
was there with the head work. He's an old Ohio all-state man. 

Williams Quarterback 

Weight 140. This was "Willie's" first year, but he made good at both 
quarter and end. His passing and speed made him look mighty sweet 
for the skipper job next year. 

Moody CuarJ 

Weight 1 70. Speed and hard-hitting characterize "Dwight L.'s" line 
work. We believe he belongs in the same tribe as "Chief." 

McCallon End 

Weight 170. "Mac" was sure there in spirit, and we predict that he 
will be a big help next year. 

Foster .;••;, Backfield 

Weight 165. "Dewey" looked mighty good to us, although he didn't 
get started till late. 


"P. C." came out wth the spirit, but heart trouble, which later caused an 
operation, forced him to remain in the background.

1 he basketball team was unable to secure a full schedule, due to being delayed by unforeseen events. 
Then Studer caused more trouble by allowmg a cow nag to throw him and break his leg. This little 
folly on the part of Studer caused the team to be very much handicapped. However, the boys did 
good work and had the satisfaction of causing three of C. U.'s age-old rivals to sweat blood during 
their several encounters. The most important games played were with Middle Tennessee Normal at 
Murfreesboro. University of Chattanooga al Chattanooga, and Bryson College at Fayetteville.

1 he Prep basketball team got a gcod start, a good schedule, and good material, and 
under the excellent coaching of Mr. Belcher were able to bring many scalps home -and 
make all basketball fans proud of C. U.'s coming stars. Ten games were played and 
our warriors won six by a large majority. McClain was sick during two of the games 
and the handicap caused by the absence of their leader resulted in the team losing those 
tames ; namely. Chapel Hill and Peoples-Tucker. These men all intend to be back next 
year and the writer predicts that the coming year will find C. U. with a team able to 
meet all comers without even the probability of a single defeat.

I UT on Cumberland field these afternoons between 3:00 and sunset one may 
witness the makmg of what is proving to be the be3t team seen on the local 
field in many years. Many of the men are already veterans of the game 
and the team as a whole is acquiring the requisite teamwork for a successful 
season. The many aspirants have now dwindled down to twenty men and new uniforms 
have been issued to twelve of them. Behind the bat we have McClure and Lansden. 
Both are showing real class. McClure is a veteran of both college and army bci^eball. 
Lansden also showed his stuff while in Uncle Sam's service. 

In the box is McNabb, a veteran of last season and a twirler worthy of note ; Fields, 
with several years' experience in college baseball; Camplin, from Wyoming, .who is tilso 
an exceptionally good utility man ; Mahon, a southpaw from ole Mississippi ; and Joe 
Nolan, who has had several seasons on local nines. 

Allen has and needs no competition on the first bag. He is also handy with the stick. 

The keystone position is being contested for by Lewis and Smith of East and West 
Tennessee, respectively, with just a shade or two in favor of the former. 

Cn the hot corner Moore from Centre College, Kentucky, is stripped lightning. 

Swiftness again comes into vogue as little Enlow from Texas scoops 'em up at short. 
Finley, a local boy, who won his letter at T. P. L, is a close second. 

hour good men are competing for the outfield. "Doug " Logan of last year's varsity 
is hard pushed by McClanahan for right field. Phillips and Toilet; are contestants for 
the left garden. Phillips is a heavy hitter and also guards his position like a sentinel in 
no-man's land within one minute of the zero hour. Lie lets mighty few get by him. 

Mr. A. B. Humphreys, who has guided the destiny of athletic activi;ies for a number 
of years at C. U., again has charge of the baseball team and the usual snap and vigor 
characteristic of his teams are being worked out beautifully. 

Dan Kahn of 1 exas, by his untiring efforts, secured this diversified and formidable 
schedule. Fifteen different colleges, representing six different states, will be met by the 
C. U. team. Many of the best games have been scheduled for the local field since the 
business men proved they were back of the team by their wonderful contributions to the 
athletic fund. Among the best games to be played at Lebanon will be with Indiana 
University, Centre Coller^e of Kentucky, Howard College of Alabama, and Mercer of

The Middle Tennessee Normal Game 

One enemy has been met and defeated. Middle Tennessee Normal, heretofore a 
thorn in the side of C. U., March 27 migrated to Lebanon and drank the dregs of defeat 
administered by our efficient nine. Six to five was the final count, and although it took 
twelve innings to do the work, the superiority of our boys was evidenced from the start. 
With McNabb in the box and McClure behind the bat, the umpire shouted "strike one," 
and thus started the baseball season of 1 92 1 . McNabb twirled throughout the entire 
twelve innings and McClure, despite a wallop on the shin, stayed as long. It was a 
good game throughout, and we hope the rest will prove as interesting and as favorable.

Richard W. Johnson, Athletic Director 

With the desire to make Cumberland University prominent m athletics as well as in 
education, the authorities have secured as athletic director Sau-soo Soggeah (vv'hose English 
name is Richard W. Johnson), a former Carhsle Indian athlete, who for two years was 
a member of the famous Carlisle football team, known as one of the most celebrated teams 
in America. Mr. Johnson was under the direct coaching of Glen S. Warner, the famous 
Carlisle coach, now coaching the University of Pittsburgh. Mr. Johnson as athletic 
director will specialize in developing Cumberland's football. He is a coach of very high 
standard, having coached for the last three years. He was coach of the champion North- 
western State College of Oklahoma team in 1917; developed a team at San Diego, Cal., 
in 1918 that won the championship of the Pacific Coast; in 1919 he coached the splendid 
Northwestern aggregation. 

The Indian has the distinction of having played in the following important games 
while a player on the Carlisle team: Two games against each of Harvard and Pitts- 
burgh, and one agamst each of the following: Cornell, Brown University, Alabama, 
No':re Dame, Syracuse, and a number of other important games. Mr. Johnson is a 
rraduale of Carlisle University, Mary Gregory's Memorial College, the U. S. Indian 
School at Chilocco, Okla., and Tulsa University. 

With a Carlisle man at the head of the coaching staff, and especially a man whose 
motto is "Concentration of the destructive elements on the decisive point," we may look 
with pride to the future,

Mr. A. B. Humpkreys, Baseball Director 

Mr. A. B. Humphreys, the leader of Lebanon's citizens, in backing C. U., and the 
man who devoted a large part of his time to the university as athletic director during the 
last five years deserves more thanks than we can give him in this article. He is a graduate 
of C. U., A.B., 1894; LL.B., 1895. During his college career he played on the local 
football teams and was captain of the baseball team. He then went to Jacksonville, Fla., 
where he practiced law and coached the University of Florida team five years. In 1906 
he returned and engaged in the manufacturing business and coached the Castle Heights 
team for two years. Then C. U. secured him and has retained him ever since. 

He is in a class by himself when it comes to putting out first-class ball clubs. Mr. 
Humphreys having been a big league player, is wise to the game, and all its lore and 
traditions. He has made it a habit to tum out winning baseball teams for C. U. and 
especially in developing teams that have taken old Vandy's measure. The athletic de- 
partment of C. U. is fortunate indeed to have a man of Mr. Humphreys' caliber on its 
athletic staff. Mr. Humphreys has prospects of a veiy successful baseball team this 
season. He is certainly to be congratulated on his record and college spirit.

Y. M. C. A. 

1 he Young Men's Chrisrian Associalion of Cumberland University was first organized 
in 1856, the first college association ever formed, with Gen. A. P. Stewart as president. 
1 his association was firmly established as a leading factor in the university in 1 88 1 . 

It is the purpose of the Young Men's Christian Association to strengthen the spiritual 
life of the university, to unite the students, to promote growth in Christian character and 
fellowship, to help young men make definite decisions. If a man is lost in the woods the 
most important question is, "Am I faced right? Am I moving siraighl ahead and not 
merely circling around and around?" It is necessary that a student have some end in 
view. You cannot read everything, or enjoy everything, or see everything. You may, 
if you choose, make the vain attempt, but you only circle around until the best years of 
your life are gone, and you are in a short span of time right back where you started. 
Every true-hearted young man wants to build up in himself a noble and worthy manhood. 
The Young Men's Christian Association stands for things that build worthy and noble 

It should be the purpose of every young man in the university to be a member of this 
organization. 1 here are questions that must be answered yes or no, not with the lips but 
with your life. I here are the questions to which the answers are marked out not in 
chemistry or in mathematics or on the athletic fields, but men are brought face to face 
with Cod and taught to feel a sense of fellowship with Him who is the source of all 
strength. There is no better organization for a young man to unite with in college that 
will help him to solve these problems better than that of the Young Men's Christian

The Y, W. C. A. was somewhat appalled al the first of the year 1920-1921 at finding only three 
old members back in school. However, these three started the ball lo rolling with a lea, at which many 
members were enrolled. The cabinet vacancies were filled with new girls, and filled well. Despite these 
difficulties, the Y. W. C. A. has done well. 

In the spring they have had cake and candy sales to raise money for Blue Ridge delegates. The 
ambition of every Y. W. girl is to go to Blue Ridge. She can go either on the "working force" for six 
weeks or she can be sent as a delegate by the association for ten days. Blue Ridge is a place of absolute 
happiness, for there one comes in contact with girls from all over the Southland, has every sort of advan- 
tage in athletics, intellectual and spiritual ways. 

They endea\or to have a missionary program once a month, thus Increasing interest in missions. 
And the last eight weeks they have had a mission study class in connection with Y, W.

In keeping wath the time-worn custom of their predecessors in this institution these 
loyal Elks have held true to the old traditions of Elkdom. Their fraternal spirit bound 
them inseparably together. The herd often wandered into the social pastures of the 
Nashville lodge, where they grazed among the good fellowship and genuine hospitality 
charactenstic of all Elkdom. 

Oft in the revelry of the night when the pendulum reached that solemn hour, together 
they bowed their antlers in reverence to the cherished memory of bygone associations. 

In school they were one m progress, pleasure and spnit ; they depart into life one in 
memory, heart and understanding.

To All Wkom It May Concern 

|E it known that on or about Friday evening. Januaiy 27, 1921, according 
to pre\ious announcement and arrangement, several members of the Philo- 
mathean Literary Society, \s-\\o deemed it fittnig and proper that on account 
of so great a number of students in the Law Department that there should 
be two societies to give each man the individual training that he or she should have in the 
art of public speaking, met at Caruthers Hall for the purpose of reviving the famous 
Caruthers Literary Society, that has won a national reputation for the orators that it has 

Mr. Walton was elected temporary chairman of the meeting, and after some discus- 
sion as to the necessary details, a committee was appointed to draft a constitution and 
by-laws, which ■were to be adopted at the next meeting. It was also agreed that the 
society should elect permanent officers at this meeting. 

When the said persons met the next Friday evening, the constitution and by-laws were 
adopted with few amendments. Mr. Walton was elected president ; Mr. Crossland, vice- 
president; Mr. Irvin, secretary: Mr. Stolnaker, treasurer; Mr. F^ill, parliamentanan ; Mr. 
Tolbert, argumentative critic; Mr. McClendon, literary critic; Mr. C. L. Hensley was 
elected sergeant-at-arms. No society ever had a more efficient set of officers. No society 
ever appreciated them more. You 'will see the roll on the next page. 

A society \vas never represented with so great a per cent of individual talent. Among 
Its orators we cannot but mention the names of Walton, Holloway, Tolbert, Irvin, Mc- 
Clendon, J. V. Gibson, Mason, and W. C. Goad. Among those who had great literary 
tastes and talent we must mention the names of Miss Packer, Toilet, Hill, Giles, Cross- 
land, Ed\\'ards, Huser and Barry. Among the men of great legal ability the names of 
Pope, Pogue, J. R. Gibson, Henry, Garden, Christ, Phillips, Steams, Gussman, Master- 
son, Baird, Ledbetter, Yumel, Goodpasture, Dr. Rieves, and the second "Tall Sycamore 
of the Wabash," Mr. C. W. Voorhies, and C. L. Hensley. 

The Cai-uthers Literaiy Society had the reputation of never having a man on the 
program absent. It was the personification of enthusiasm teamwork. There was not 
a man in it but came out an efficient public speaker, a deeper and broader reasoner, 
and a more graceful and polished wielder of the King's English. 

Her male sextet, consisting of Messrs. Goad, Hill. Stolnaker. Edward, Huser and 
Rieves, wll never be forgotten by her other members nor those who listened to their 
entrancing melodies. These men had a reputation far beyond the confines of Lebanon. 
Never a Sunday passed but that they were begged to sing at some of the churches of the 
city or those of some of the sister cities of Lebanon. Mr. Goad had won a national 
reputation as a soloist on a thousand Chautauqua platfonns before he ever saw Cumber- 
land University. 

And the tones of Miss Chambers' \'iolin, who can describe them? As we listened to

the soothing notes produced by her, we saw hfe's May morning again. We looked back- 
ward through the long vistas of time to our yester years with their springs and summers 
and flowers. We saw again the drifting snow as if lay a white blanket over the world near 
our childhood home. We heard voices that have long been still. We heard bits of song 
that are never sung. We sat again beneath some distant evergreen, at close of day, as 
the moonbeams filled the world with silver light but whose rays could not penetrate the 
immediate vicinity of our sacred tiysting place. It seemed that we could almost behold 
fairy hands beckoning us on to the unexplored scenes of Fields Elysian, and honest, we 
wished that she would never stop. 

And the music from Miss Meier's piano had about the same effect. In fact, ladies 
and gentlemen, there never has been and never will be a society just exactly like ours nor 
as good as it was. Honest.

Tne Greek D 


It has been a long-standing custom at Cumberland University for ail wandering 
Greeks to organize as a club to promote sociability and helpfulness and to keep together 
all the bonds of brotherhood. It was with this in mind that the odd Greeks, who at the 
time of organization numbered thirteen but gradually increased to twenty-one in number, 
organized soon after the opening of the fall term of school and adopted the name of 
"Greek Denizens." Many enjoyable and beneficial meetings and smokers have been 
had and each man will long remember his Greek cousins at Cumberland.

Psi CKi 

Honorary Legal Fraternity 

Membership in this fraternity is conferred as a recogni- 
tion of scholarly attainments of unusual merit, and only in 
such cases when the prospective member has attamed some 
office or position of honor or distinction in college life. 
Certain standards are prescribed which must be met, but membership is 
open to the entire student body and members are chosen from its num- 
bers. None are eligible for membership in the fraternity until the last 
month of the junior course. 

Beta Council of Psi Chi was not chartered until late in the year 1 920 
and no members were initiated until February of the present year. The 
foundations have been well laid, however, and it is hoped that in the 
future Psi Chi v^ll be a real asset to Cumberland University, and will 
perhaps serve as an incentive to greater student activities and advanced

VER fall 'bout round-up time, thar's a gen'r'l stampede o' Texas punchers 
frum off th' range all th' way frum Red River clean on down to th' Rio 
Grande, all a-slopin' in th' gen'r'l d'rection o' Ten-e-c, whar Davy Crockett 
'n' Sam Houston an' all tother Texicans cum frum. Th' fall o' 1 920 
wam't no 'xception, an' a hungry iookin' crew this one war — ail on us a hankerin' atter 
iarnin'. An' a right smart larnin' we uns hev did, tew; purty peart in thet branch, we 
uns be. 

The hull dern crew o' we uns got corralled purty quick atter we uns 'rived yere in 
Leb'non, 'n we uns hev been bedded down yere fer a right smart spell neow. We, uns 
hev been powerful oneasy and res'less like at times, but we uns figgers thet in thet respec' 
folks is jes' like cattle when th' punchers is millin' 'em round, 'casionally puttin' th' 
brandin' iron on some maverick. We uns 're all a-hopin' the colledge '11 brand we uns 
nex' June with one o' these yere LL.B. degrees. 

This yere club war organized right off th' jump, an' we uns all 'low it are purty 
peart. Th' firs' few meetin's war consumed in each feller 'dmittin' tother tew memb'rship, 
th' levyin' an' c'lectin' o' a few fees, an' th' like, ez well ez puttin' over sum bit o' 
constructiv' Democrat leg'slation, in 'cordance with some powerful inspirin' speech-makin' 
on th' part o' th' hull passel. 

rh' primary objec' o' th' club is th' study an' mutchual discussion o' Texas law, 
'specially th' 1 exas statoots. We uns hev made 't a pint to hev two meetin's ever week, 
with reg'l'r lessins 'signed fer each meetin', which we uns recite ; an' a powerful help it 
hez been tew. Owin' tew th' oncommon kindness o' Judge Beard we uns hev a reg'l'r 
club room in which we uns kin meet frum time tew time and palaver, an' we uns 're 
powerful grateful fer sech a priv'lige. 

We uns likewise institooted a Texas court fer th' speedy trial o' all Texas criminals 
ez 're memb'rs o' th' club ; an' we uns all figgers thet it speaks right well fer th' high- 
falutin' cultur o* th* memb'rs o' th' club thet th' court didn't operate more'n a brief spell, 
owin' tew a lack o' proper subjec's tew its jur'sdiction. Howsomever, th' club's still 
functionin' othei-wise, an' we uns all figgers thet it may likely pruv uv no oncommon benefit 
fer we uns when we uns sidle 'longside th' bar down 't Austin, th' firs' waterhole we uns '11 
make atter we uns grab a handful o' leather, git astraddle o' our critters, an' 're gone frum 
Leb'non — "gone but not forgotten," we uns all hopes.

Somewhere it is writ "There is nothing new under the sun," and be that as it may, we 
are absolutely certain that the author of this oft-quoted saying had never seen the Senior 
Law Class. 

We beheve that it was Chaucer, Story or some other noted aeronaut who said that 
some men are born funny (meanmg "humorous"), some thmk they are funny, while 
others — poor creatures — die while yet m the state of delusion. 

Unfortunately, or otherwise, we cannot claim any affiliation with the first class ; the 
fact is, at that time we were of such a tender age that our father, despite his son's plead- 
ings, positively refused to tell us whether or not we were destined to be "witty." 

But back to the question of "What color to whitewash the fence." Be it resolved, 
that we have been duly elected editor of this most prosperous sheet. We were vei-y much 
mortified on entering the duties of this office to find that the rules and regulations govern- 
ing the siaff and the joke editor strictly forbid the use of any originality. Hence it 
behooves us to seek material from outside sources. We take great pleasure in acknowl- 
edging valuable assistance from Dante, Irvin Cobb, Chancellor Kent and other famous 
and world-renowned musicians. Also from Sears-Roebuck. Ladies' Birthday Almanac 
and Robert W. Service's cookbook on "How to Raise Poultry." 

Judge Beard: "Mr. Mason, what is 

Mason: "Locking a woman up in a 
room for forty days."

Bertha Grissim: "I notice that Mrs. 
Harding is going to spend two thousand 
dollars a year on her wardrobe." 

"Willie" William: "My, what does 
she want with such an expensive ward- 
robe? She must have a lot of fine clothes 
to put in it."

The literary societies of the Law De- 
partment are arousing no little interest at 
present. In a recent debate in the Ca- 
ruthers Society the subject was, "Re- 
solved, Napoleon was a greater man than 
Washington." Hensley, a defender of 
the negative, gave as his argument that he 
was unable to find a single speech in the 
Congressional Record uttered by Napo- 
leon. Hess Crossland, of the affirmative, 
stated that Napoleon for ten years led the 
American League in hitting. 

It was only last week that the Philo- 
matheans debated the following subject : 
"Resolved, that the inaugural ball should 
be illuminated."

Prof. Baird : "Mr. Coffee, bring me 

the botde of H.S." 

Coffee: "Here is some, professor, but

Prof. Lemon asked his class in psy- 
chology to write on a slip of paper what 
they wished to get out of psychology. 

One of the students wrote: "I wish to 
get out of it all."

"Chief" Johnson had a very close call 
the other night when he went to take a pill 
in the dark and by mistake look a bath 
instead. However, as we go to press 
Chief's condition is much improved. His 
physician says that should no complica- 
tions arise he should be out in a week 
or so.

Two of our distinguished young attor- 
neys had the exquisite pleasure of attend- 
ing a reception recently given by Judge 
Walker in their honor. A delightful liter- 
ary program was rendered. Bill Goad 
was scheduled for an address on the 
"Blessedness of Prohibition," but was un- 
able to be present. Martin of Texas and 
Hess Crossland of Kentucky both gave 
interesting discourses on "The Blessedness 
of Liberty." A number of the other stu- 
dents were present. 

The affair was purely formal, the entire 
affair being carried out uniformly. The 
color scheme of blue and brass added very 
much to the impressiveness of the oc- 
casion. Several clubs of the city were 
present to assist in the entertainment. 

At the conclusion of the program Judge 
Walker thanked the young gentlemen for 
their presents, and congratulated them on 
their philanthropic spirit.

He was borned at a placed called Anno

first one he ordered to be executed, but she 
was beheaded. He revoked the second, 
and the third she died. And then he mar- 
ried Annie Bowling, the daughter of Tom

Will of Senior Law Class of 1921 


E, the Senior Law Class of 1 92 1 of Cumberland University, being of un- 
sound mind but of a very disposing memory and knovv'ing the certamty of 
"flunking" and the uncertainty of graduation, do hereby make and publish 
il this our first will and testament, hereby revoking and invalidating all sub- 
sequent wills by us at any time made : 

Item 1 . We will and direct that all our debts, both just and unjust, including the 
expenses of our graduation, shall forever remain unpaid. 

Item 2. It is our will, and we so desire, that all the hearts we have broken during 
our exile in this remote, foreign land, shall retain their dilapidated condition until the sun 
rises in the west. 

Item 3. We desire to extend to the citizens of Lebanon no expressions of apprecia- 
tion or gratitude for the inhospitalities and unkindnesses shown us during the past year, and 
we shall never forgive them for the many rumors and reports, whether false or true, which 
they have circulated about us. 

Item 4. To the "Senior Law Class of 1922," to us commonly kno\\Ti as the 
juniors, we will, give, devise and bequeath our places of abode in Lebanon, and trust that 
they will (ill them with as much trouble and inconvenience to their landladies as we did ; 
also a few volumes of Story and 4th Kent, and very many lists of exam questions, but for 
which we would never have gotten our LL.B.'s; also our professional abilities which have 
enabled us to recover new exam questions thirty minutes before the examination ; and last, 
but not least, one special list of twenty questions on Equity Jurisprudence, which we 
guarantee to "flunk" a U. S. Supreme Court justice. 

Item 5. To the "Lit" students, who are inclined to punish peaceable men in the 
wee small hours of the night with weird music, we devise all our old buckets, basins, tin 
pans, ukes and tin horns, to perpetuate the "Bolshevik Club" with its motto, "Better 
disorder in the dormitory" ; also the use of the university flivver for chasing over the city 
to fires at night. 

Item 6. To the negro boys who sweep our rooms and make up our beds, we give 
and bequeath all our old sox, old clothes, empty white com bottles, cigarette and cigar 
stubs, pipes and tobacco and old rubber raincoats, and request that these be used in a 
manner befitting their former ownws. 

Item 7. We devise the thirteen cents remaining in the class "wampum" to the uni- 
versity athletic fund to be used to buy new uniforms for the 1921 football team, and to 
erect a new grandstand. 

Item 8. To the future residents of the dormitory we will, give and bequeath one 
"Lemon" ; also our vast collection of art pictures, but same must never be removed from

the places of honor they now occupy on the walls; also one first-class heating plant, which 
has long since passed the stages of usefulness, and an A- 1 water system that is capable 
of furnishing only cold water, if any at all; also our eating supplies, which consist of two 
cars of homuiy and ten tons of army bacon, well salted and guaranteed to last a lifetime, 
and a vast quantity of tough mule steak, on the hoof, which Mr. Gann will slaughter as 
demand warrants. Henry Ford's tin cows will continue to supply all the milk needed. 

Item 9. All the rest and residue of our once valuable estate, of whatsoever kind and 
character the devil only knows, of which we may be possessed at our graduation but of 
which we know we are not lawfully seized, we give and bequeath to the future law stu- 
dents of Cumberland University, and we charge said legatees with the future "support of 
the mountain child." 

Item 1 0. And now before appointing the executors of this will, and laying all fool- 
ishness and jokes aside, we desire to extend to Judges E. E. Beard and W. R. Chambers, 
professors of the Law Department, our sincere thanks and appreciation for their kind 
attentions to us and their untiring efforts in our behalf, and we wish to say that any fame 
that any of us might attain in after-life we shall owe to their perseverance. 

And having full faith in the integrity and inability of the said "Senior Law Class of 
1922," we appoint said class as the executors of this will and testament, but direct that 
they execute bond in triple the value of our estate, and request that they carry out the 
provisions of this will as leisurely and unsystematically as possible after our departure. 

Witness our hand at Caruthers Hall, this June 1 , 1 92 1 , at 1 0:30 o'clock, a. m. 

Senior Law Class of 1 92 1 . 

Signed, sealed, published and declared in our presence and at our demand, as and 
for the first will and testament of the Senior Law Class of 1 92 I , and we, at the request 
of each other and in the presence of each other, but in the absence of the testator, have 
hereunto subscribed our names as attesting witnesses, at Memorial Hall, this June I , I 92 1 ,
